    The well-written characters and story details make it easy to get wrapped up in the world of Geos and its strange inhabitants. But the short length and simple nature of the adventure keep Lili from being a truly great experience.

    Lili is a game that looks great, and optimally could have been a more open Infinity Blade-esque game, but in the end, the repetition and unnecessary elements drag it down.

    Lili is a gorgeous game with lots of personality and bundles of charm. But as a game it's rather insubstantial and struggles to hold your attention for long.

    Lili is definitely style over substance: it has gorgeous graphics, a well-crafted scenario and slick interface and controls, but it's ultimately a quite boring and repetitive game.

    Behind its stunning visuals there's a good game full of details with a great gameplay. It's quite simple and doesn't make the most of its RPG features. Apart from this, Lili is an entertaining experience recommended for iOS users looking for an adventure game.

    It's hard not to love Lili. Like the character, the game can be obnoxious at times. But it's so pretty, so well-written, so cleverly designed on the whole that complaining feels a lot like nitpicking.

    If it wasn't for the extraordinary graphic impact, Lili would deserve at least half a point less and this because the gameplay is not up to the visuals.

    Lili is an excellent and creative game that takes a casual approach to open world role-playing.

    Why does a game that promises and sets up for an adventure feel so small...like it never left the comfortable shores of the status quo?

    In a market dominated by might-makes-right mentalities, guns, blood and violence, Lili makes for a refreshing change that's not as passive as it sounds; as fun to play as it is beautiful to look at - a definite treat if you can happen to play it.

    Picking flowers of the heads of monsters isn't something you do every day. Aside from this quirky game mechanic, Lili is also a surprisingly fun adventure in a world full of colorful characters.

    Thankfully, there's more to it than eye candy, and this substance outshines the negatives. Worth five bucks? Absolutely.

    Lili is one of the most beautiful games for iOS, and it is also one of the most complete gaming experiences thus far beside classics like Dead Space.

    Lili is a simple game that focuses mainly on exploration and chatting to people other than combat. It's a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to experience.

    Even though it is a beautifully told story, gorgeously rendered, some may say harshly it is just a glorified mini-game.

    It's a pity that for such a good-looking game, Lili is absolutely lifeless.

    Control issues aside, Lili is a charming mobile adventure game, and a definite showpiece for smartphone visuals for a while to come.

    Lili is truly a one-of-a-kind game. It's one of those titles that you just have to have, and though it's on the higher end of iOS game pricing at $4.99, it's well worth the cost. If you only buy one game this week, make it Lili.
